Enter for a chance to win one of 100 advance, first edition copies of "Seeing Reality As It Is" by Joseph L. Giovannoli. His first book, "The Biology of Belief", published in 2000 was recommended reading in college courses at a number of universities. Thus far, “Seeing Reality As It Is” was favorably reviewed by Kirkus Reviews.
In "Seeing Reality As It Is", the author examines why we have very different views of things such as climate change, political polarization, and reality in general. He cites research showing that our brains adapted to aid our survival and not to enable us to see reality as it is. He explains that the biases and brain traits we inherit, which he coined as our “genetic chaperones”, aid our survival by chaperoning our behavior with false perceptions of reality. Ego enhancing biases that build confidence are an example. He further examines how cognitive hackers use social media data about our chaperone profiles to create false realities by triggering our chaperones with propaganda. He also describes neurological processes that make it difficult for us to recognize our false perceptions and how our perceptions can be verified.
A killer intoxicated by pain. Should Alex Madison stop her—or save her?
Across London, hospital patients are dying—in shockingly unnatural circumstances. A sadistic young woman is targeting them as they lie helpless in their beds, eking out every last sensation of pain as their lives ebb to an excruciating close.
The killer is a sadist, but careful too, so the police bring in forensic psychologist Dr Alex Madison to track down what is clearly an extraordinary and damaged mind. For Alex, the case has a personal resonance he can’t reveal: he knows pain and addiction all too well, and must fight to control his own downward spiral long enough to stop the killer’s campaign of cruelty.
As Alex closes in on the killer, it becomes clear that there are darker forces at work, and a connection to his previous case ignites his worst fears. When he uncovers the shocking truth behind the killer’s motivations, Alex must decide: should he pursue the police’s version of justice—or hunt down the sinister organisation that has warped another soul?
"All Man, All Rock, All Tree. Everything Hates Them. In our sewers there are still some Christians and Jews left. Seek out and kill them all." - Anonymous, Year 2031
It is nearing the end of the 3rd year of the caliphate invasion. Our cities, as with the rest of the world's cities, remain in their control. And thus being so, we are still hunted and still hidden beneath the streets we once called our own. We have not lost faith, though. We will continue the struggle to reclaim our towns and the right to pray to our own God, even more so after the collapse of Sector 4. For it is their testaments that I have compiled herein. To those who read them, I say this: Believe none, believe some, or believe all. But this was Sector 4, in both its rise and its fall.
- Major Caleb Adams, US Army, Sector 3, City of Ayla.
